2A Sanctuaries

Postby Jon » Wed, 20 Nov 2019 16:56:46

Dinwiddie just voted last night to declare so now we have 3 counties, Appomattox, Campbell and Dinwiddie.

I think we'll be seeing a lot more of this.

I was wondering if Dinwiddie would be on board. Assuming that Duck Adams is still the sheriff of that county, I wouldn't count on him to be fully committed to the cause.

Still, though, I am pleased to hear this!

I haven't searched to see who won the Sheriffs spot but I didnt vote for him.

And I guess you've brought up a good point that I guess everyone would have to be on board for it to be worthwhile to the county. If the local Sheriff goes against the BOS then it may not be as beneficial as it seems.

Still, it's nice knowing that a majority of locals/constituents feels the same way I do.

Yep; Duck Adams got reelected:

I'm not posting any details publicly, but I will say that I have no faith in that man.

With confiscation coming (No grandfathering) to Virginia, every gun owner needs to stand and fight these clowns and refuse to give in.

VCDL e-mail this morning says Nottoway Country voted for it last night.

I sent e-mails to the Chesterfield County supervisors yesterday morning. No response, so far.

The VCDL has been informed of meetings to take place in multiple counties but were not given the locations/times of those meetings. They're asking for people in counties still on the fence to e-mail them with the location and time of the meetings in those counties.

Hopefully no one will be upset if I copy/paste that e-mail here for people to use the info.

contents of VCDL e-mail:

Philip has been receiving lots of info on various localities holding meetings to discuss becoming a Second Amendment Sanctuary locality. As you can imagine, we are swamped with all the info & questions people are providing & asking.

It would really help speed up our process of disseminating this info via VA-ALERT if you can provide the following information on any Second Amendment Sanctuary locality meeting in the following format:

If there is a meeting scheduled to discuss a Sanctuary locality resolution, we need the following info about the meeting:

Date
Time
Location (including street address, city, and ZIP Code)
Any restrictions on carry, ie, the meeting is in a courthouse or school.

In addition, we need the following info for each Supervisor (or Councilman/Councilwoman):

Name
District
Email
Phone

Please provide this info in text format and in the form shown above and email it to president@vcdl.org. That will make it so much easier to cut & paste the info into a VA-ALERT message so that we can share it with our members & supporters.

Again, thanks for all your support and we are never ever going to give up. Like the Terminator, we will not ever give up. We will always continue to Defend Your Right to Defend Yourself.

I was at the Rockbridge County meeting tonight.

The meeting only had residents speak. There was no vote tonight, or questions answered by the Board of Supervisors.

The next meeting December 9th is @ Rockbridge County High School 5:30 pm. A vote will take place at this meeting.

So many people showed up to the County offices that, the meeting got moved to the Middle school gymnasium. Every seat in the gym was full, & close to 100 of us standing.

While a few anti-gunner libs did get up & speak... the crowd, & speakers were overwhelmingly supportive of sanctuary status for the county, & most demanded the Board of Supervisors approve such status for our County.

Last I saw somewhere between 30 and 40 counties in the state will be voting on this in the next couple weeks.


I predict things are going to get interesting in VA.

I just sent off my email to all the members of the Albemarle Board of Supervisors.

Among other things, I reminded them of their oath of office.

Code of Virginia
ยง 49-1. Form of general oath required of officers.
Every person before entering upon the discharge of any function as an officer of this Commonwealth shall take and subscribe the following oath: "I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support the Constitution of the United States, and the Constitution of the Commonwealth of Virginia, and that I will faithfully and impartially discharge all the duties incumbent upon me as ____________________ according to the best of my ability, (so help me God)."

In researching this I found it unusual that, unlike most other oaths of office I've seen this one omits "and defend" after "I will support".

This 2A Sanctuary thing has taken off like gang-busters! Almost HALF the counties in the state are onboard! If was can get 80% of the state!!??

The Commies SAY it doesn't mean anything...

...but like that foot massage in "Pulp Fiction", we know they mean something.

We're up to 43 counties and theres about double many more that will be voting soon and more than likely come on board.

Geographically you're going to end up with like 90% of the state pro 2A.

If you still think things aren't heating up in VA you might want to get out of bed...

Proud to report Rockbridge County passed the resolution to become a 2A Sanctuary county last night.

The meeting was nearly 3 hours. It lasted so long because of the high number of residents that spoke. It was very encouraging to see so many friends, neighbors, patriots, & fellow citizens in attendance. The meeting was held at the local High School. The auditorium was completely full, & hundreds of people outside where, they live streamed the meeting, & pumped the audio over the intercom.

The attendees were not your "normal" political activists/attendees. The crowd was working class people. The type of people that are usually at work, or tending to their families vs. attending political events. They are definitely awake now. Guarantee they will be watching what happens next. I look for a HUGE turnout in November.

I hope to attend the VCDL lobby day in Richmond 1-20. I sincerely hope that the newly elected general assembly doesn't ignore all of us, & do what they want anyways. A powder keg is brewing. I talked to many people last night. Looking into their eyes, & the passion coming from them, they (GA) would be foolish to ignore us all. A very significant portion of our population will NOT back down, & willl NOT live on their knees....

At this point Henrico, Chesterfield, and Hanover are all wishy-washy.

Some disrespectful asses (And I said it!) at the Henrico Council member level, but they have a shock coming election time.

I'm gearing up for a literal fight at Chesterfield tomorrow. The Anti's are PHYSICALLY threatening to do physical harm to any pro-gun people, and the BoS put a BUNCHA anti-gun folk from outta state on the limited speaking list.

VCDL e-mail this morning said the count was up to 77 sanctuary counties/cities.

Henrico did vote to become one of them.

Chesterfield is tonight.

VCDL says the meeting has been moved up to 5:30 PM from the original 6 PM start time.

Also some county admin/managers are urging their employees to attend and fill up the seat in the meeting room. The list of speakers shows a majority of anti 2nd Amendment speakers according to the VCDL. The deck was stacked on this one.

I'm going. Taking a lawn chair, blanket and thermos of hot coffee in case I have to sit outside for awhile. Between the left knee, right lower leg circulation issues and messing up my back a few weeks ago, I can't stand around on the concrete for an hour or three.

Y'all have fun in Chesterfield. I hope that it works out.

This 2A Sanctuary thing seems to be taking off; this is heartening.

Well our Floyd County supervisors here in VA just unanimously passed a 2nd Amendment Sanctuary resolution last night! These Supervisor meetings normally draw just a handful of people. This one filled a 600 seat auditorium with more standing! I understand the Wythe County meeting drew some 1,100 people! We are now up to 77 counties and municipalities in VA that have passed such a resolution. Up yours governor Northam!

This movement has legs!

Latest VCDL e-mail says after last night the total is up to 84 county/city/town 2nd Amendment sanctuary localities in the state.

Sadly, Chesterfield County BoS refused to vote on it. Four rinos, one dim/lib/prog/socialist and the rinos went belly up.

Hopefully it'll come up again next month.

I think Richmond is pretty much surrounded now except for Chesterfield County. I'm wondering if some of those rinos will end up appointed to position in ole blackface Northam's administration after January??

Eight more counties added to the list last night.

And another county Sheriff that says he'll deputize citizens in his county to insure they can keep their guns.

I'm beginning to hear that line from The Princess Bride where Inego says, "You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means."

I don't believe the dim/lib/prog/socialists expected to get what they are getting.
